Enterprise IT vendor IBM has bagged a 10 year, services deal with WOOX Innovations.
As per the deal, IBM will move key operations to the IBM Cloud, including global supply chain, over 100 business applications and core IT infrastructure services.
The agreement will support WOOX Innovations’ goal of achieving its next level of IT transformation and growth.
The Hong Kong-based WOOX Innovations will benefit from efficiencies in supply chain, operations and technology, as well as process enhancements across a diverse set of functional areas.
WOOX Innovations looked at establishing a new global IT infrastructure as part of its transition from the Lifestyle Entertainment Business Unit of Royal Philips to become a part of the US-based Gibson Brands.
“We have chosen to work with IBM as we believe we can differentiate in the market with a global cloud backbone and the expertise of IBM to help innovate and grow our future business,” said Wiebo Vaartjes, CEO of WOOX Innovations.
IBM will assist WOOX Innovations in designing and operating new core enterprise applications on an SAP platform that will manage and run more than 100 integrated business applications on cloud infrastructure from SoftLayer.
This apart, IBM Cloud will host nearly all core IT infrastructure services for WOOX Innovations such as directory services, distributed printing, mobile device management and virtual desktops.
The client will utilize hybrid cloud capabilities to provision business applications and infrastructure from multiple interconnected and secure cloud Points of Delivery to serve WOOX Innovations’ global footprint in 21 locations.
“IBM will assist WOOX Innovations beyond the core enterprise business domains and into the realms of systems of engagement, digital front office, cloud-based product innovations, analytic-driven business management and other growth-oriented domains,” said Chun Yin Mak, managing partner of IBM Global Business Services in Hong Kong.
